Gunmen attacked a paramilitary convoy in restive Indian Kashmir Saturday, killing two soldiers before entering a government-run training institute with 100 people inside, police said, with firing still ongoing. The militants, believed to be rebels opposed to Indian rule, assaulted a Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy before paramilitaries engaged them in a firefight in the complex on the outskirts of Srinagar. "Two CRPF personnel died in the initial assault on the convoy and ten others were injured," Javaid Gillani, inspector general of police for the region, told AFP, adding that militants then entered the complex.
